Josh Allen Makes UK Football History (Again)

@Jaguars

@Jaguars

Josh Allen continues to do things no other Kentucky Wildcat football player has done before.

Sunday he was promoted to the AFC’s Pro Bowl roster. Allen is just the ninth former Wildcat to be selected to the Pro Bowl and the first to do it in his rookie season. Allen’s rookie selection is also a first for the Jaguars’ franchise.

Another former Wildcat is rising through the ranks of Cats in the pros. This year marks the third-straight season offensive guard Larry Warford has been named to the Pro Bowl. He has made the Pro Bowl in all three seasons he’s played for the New Orleans Saints after starting his career as a third round draft pick for the Detroit Lions.

Warford’s third selection moves him past Randall Cobb, the wide receiver who played in the 2014 and 2015 Pro Bowls. Only three former Wildcats have earned more Pro Bowl bids: Art Still (4x), Jeff Van Note (5x) and Pro Football Hall of Famer Dermontti Dawson (7x).

Allen and Warford will put on football pads one more time this season at Camping World Stadium in Orlando this Saturday at 3:00 p.m. ET on ESPN and ABC. Remember the last time Josh Allen played at Camping World Stadium?

Unfortunately, there will not be a Wildcat at the Super Bowl in Miami. Two former Cats were in action on Championship Sunday. Wesley Woodyard had three tackles in the Titans’ 35-24 loss to the Chiefs and Za’Darius Smith had five tackles in the Packers’ 17-point defeat in San Francisco.
